SmartforLife Releases Its First Clinical Study

Weight Loss Cookie Program proven to reduce significant weight.

Smartforlife Clinical studyIn a retrospective chart review clinical study conducted on 46 subjects who visited the Boca Raton Smart for Life® Weight Management Center and used a portion-controlled, protein-rich, low fat cookie with unique fiber technology, all subjects lost weight with the average being 13.1 pounds in 35 days.  Five subjects lost over 20 pounds in 35 days and 20 subjects lost over 15 pounds in the first 35 days.  The 46 participants lost a total of 601 pounds with one patient losing 38.7 pounds in 35 days.

This study is very significant because a loss of 5-10% has shown clinical improvement in people’s health which is far greater than the amount of weight they lost.

The average client’s Body Mass Index (BMI) dropped by 2.5 points from 31.5 to 29.  Most people dropped more than 5% of their body weight and many lost 10%. “This is clinically significant because we know the health benefits from 5% to 10% weight loss are huge.  When individuals can achieve these results in a short 5 to 6 weeks with relative ease, I see this as a great way for people to start on a path to a healthier lifestyle,” says Dr. Sasson Moulavi, M.D. who conducted the study.

Subjects were instructed to eat 6 Smart for Life® Diet Cookies (or Smart cupcakes, bagel chips, shakes, soups, crunch, cereals and more that are the equivalent of a cookie) specifically designed to suppress hunger and made with specific protein and HeroFiber TM. Each day, subjects drank at least 64 ounces of water and ate 6-12 ounces of lean protein with 5 servings of vegetables. All clients were seen by a diet physician before starting, and then weighed weekly with a choice to check in with a counselor or physician.

The Smart for Life® Cookie Diet has seen huge success with more and more people trying it every day.  The company understands the study’s importance in that it clinically documents what clients achieve each day.

“This study proves what our clients already know – the weight loss is achievable.  We have proven that our program is easy and provides quick, safe weight loss.  I believe we are the only one of the “cookie diets” that has released such a study. We always knew we have the best products and this study goes a long way to support our thinking. We offer the widest variety and believe we have the healthiest products using all-natural and organic ingredients and pack our cookies with nitrogen to avoid preservatives,” says Dr. Sass Moulavi, Founder of Smart for Life.

Smart for Life® Cookie Diet plans to schedule a longer study with a larger sample group in order to review how its results measure up to these recent findings.

Boca Raton Doctor and Wife Team Helps Clients Lose Weight Safely

Boca Raton Doctor at SmartforLife®

Boca Raton DoctorFor more than four years Boca Raton doctor Dr. Sasson Moulavi and wife Renata have helped thousands of clients lose tens of thousands of pounds. Their Smart for Life™ Weight Management Center on Glades Road has attracted all types of clients throughout South Florida.

Renata Moulavi, who supervises the Boca center says, “Some of our clients are looking to lose just ten to fifteen pounds and some want to lose as much as fifty or more pounds, we help them lose the weight with our program. The diet is very simple – six cookies throughout the day, eight glasses of water or other no calorie drinks and a low fat protein dinner consisting of six ounces of fish, chicken, turkey or shellfish and two vegetables. With this program they can lose as much as twelve to fifteen pounds a month.”

The cookies, which come in five flavors, are exclusively available at Smart for Life™ Weight Management Centers. The cookies are full of nutrients, amino acids, and fiber which suppress hunger while still supplying the body with the protein it needs. They are also all-natural, with organic ingredients and have no chemical appetite suppressants or artificial sweeteners. Clients that found Dr. Sass by looking for a Boca Raton doctor praise the diet for its excellent hunger control and rapid weight loss. “I lost one hundred twenty-five pounds so far, with another twenty-five to my goal weight. The doctors and staff at the center are caring, friendly, encouraging and I refer my clients to them all the time,” says Ralph Ruggiero, Delray Beach Moda Salon III.

Work With a Boca Raton Doctor That Specializes In Weight Loss

According to Dr. Moulavi, “We medically supervise patients throughout the weight loss process and work closely with their primary care physician which helps them make positive changes in their lives by helping them reach and maintain their weight loss goals. We also address issues such as high blood pressure and diabetes – hopefully decreasing, and in some cases eliminating, their need for prescription medications as they lose weight.”

“Renata is great with the clients, she treats them like family. She always makes them feel comfortable even if they aren’t losing the weight they want. The whole staff works hard to help our clients stay dedicated and keep on track to their target goal weight. We know our clients are concerned about their weight and we take this very seriously,” said Dr Moulavi.

Dr. Sasson Moulavi is also Chief Medical Officer of U.S. Medical Care Holdings, the emerging growth weight management chain doing business as Smart for Life™ Weight Management Centers, with corporate headquarters in Boca Raton and 32 locations throughout the United States and Canada with another 40 either under construction or contracted for.

SmartforLife Can Save The Economy According To Weight Management Centers

Smart for Life™ Weight Management Centers Battles The Health Problems and Associated Costs That Come With Obesity

FL weight managementSmart for Life™ Weight Management Centers has the answer to win the war on health problems and expense associated with obesity.

“Obesity has become a crucial health and economic problem for our nation. Medical costs alone reflect the significance of the challenge,” said Dr. Sasson Moulavi, Chief Medical Officer of OS Medical Care Holdings, the emerging growth weight management chain doing business as Smart For Life™ Weight Management Centers.

Obesity and its associated health problems have substantial economic consequences for the U.S. health care system. In 2007, it is projected to cost individuals and the government an additional whopping $140 billion. According to a Surgeon General report, most of these costs are due to Type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, and hypertension.

Weight Management Can Save Your Life

“Being overweight can be dangerous to your wealth,” said Jay L. Zagorsky, an economist at Ohio State University who has looked at the relationship between various economic and sociological factors and a measure of obesity called the body mass index.

In a report published in the New York Times, in Florida alone, an additional $4 billion is spent on Medicare and Medicaid only. These costs are ultimately paid for by the consumer in the form of taxes and higher insurance premiums.

And there are still other ‘invisible’ costs. The airline industry has been hit hard in recent years by the additional weight its passengers are carrying. The industry has had to revise their approach to policies such as baggage weight limits to account for the rising adiposity of their customers.

The airline industry had to purchase an additional 350 million gallons of jet fuel in 2005, which resulted in an additional $275 million in expenses due solely to the increased weight of passengers. Thus, the increase may not concern the individual with their own overeating; however, with the increase in airline ticket prices they may be affected as a consumer.

Moulavi’s recommendation? The Smart For Life™ program, the popular diet of the national weight management chain. Smart for Life’s system, which offers a medically supervised program with on-staff physicians, require clients to eat cookies all day long. When clients follow the program, they lose an average of 12 to 15 pounds per month. The secret is a specially formulated protein-rich cookie and a doctor’s supervision.

The cookies are full of nutrients, amino acids, and fiber which suppress hunger while still supplying the body with the protein it needs. They are also all-natural and have no chemical appetite suppressants or artificial sweeteners. Patients praise the diet for its excellent hunger control and rapid weight loss.

Smart for Life™ Weight Management Centers, with corporate headquarters in Boca Raton, FL, has 32 locations throughout the United States and Canada with another 40 either under construction or contracted for.

So, Smart for Life asks what people want: another couple jelly donuts or a cheaper airline ticket to Europe this summer?

New Weight Loss Center Tries To Make You Smart For Life

A New Kind of Weight Loss Center

weight loss centerAs the manager of the Smart for Life™, Michelle Davidson has brought the nationally franchised weight-loss program to Wichita.

It’s not just the 10 to 15 pounds the program claims to help customers lose every month that first caught Davidson’s attention; it’s also the way in which they lose it.

“I got really curious about this when I heard people were eating cookies and losing weight,” she said.

Those cookies are part of Smart for Life’s product line of “Smart” foods, which also includes shakes, soups and puddings.

Formulated with proteins and amino acids, the products are designed to provide natural hunger suppression throughout the day while still providing the necessary nutrients. Combined with a specified evening meal and daily water intake of 64 ounces, the products form the basis of the Smart for Life program, with exercise added as the weight comes off.

The Weight Loss Center Objective Is To Help You

For Davidson, the program’s commitment to overall customer health is what sets it apart.

Each client is given a customized plan at their weight loss center, created under the supervision of a physician like James Seberger, who works with Davidson to determine each person’s specific needs. “He has a passion for this, and that adds to the program,” Davidson said.

Davidson’s passion is customer service, which she said she now combines with her enjoyment of health and nutrition.

Originally from Smith Center, Davidson graduated from with a degree in human resource management.

Having lived in Wichita for 10 years, Davidson said she first became interested in Smart for Life after family members in California and Tennessee had success as franchisees. Started in 2002, Smart for Life has approximately 40 clinics in North America.

In opening her East Central location Nov. 5, Davidson brought the second such clinic to Kansas. The other is in Overland Park.

Although she hopes to eventually open a west Wichita location, Davidson said she is just concentrating on getting the word out about the center for now.

For her, Smart for Life clients need only follow the same advice she would give other prospective business owners.

“The biggest thing is to try,” she said. “You never know what can happen. If you have a passion and a dream, right or wrong, go for it.”
